I don’t love to cook. I get stuck in ruts. And now that my daughter is a tornado at dinnertime, I try to stick with super-easy and fast meals. But this recipe may be enough to make me branch out. Fish has always intimidated me, especially because my husband is super sensitive about fish. But this salmon recipe? I think I could tackle it! Besides, the health factor on this dish, which came to us courtesy of Florida Citrus, is crazytown. Many of its ingredients, including orange juice, salmon, dark leafy greens and nuts contain important nutrients and antioxidants known to help promote cardiovascular health. If you’re short on time, skip the homemade honey pecans and pick them up at the store. Enjoy!
